Fantastic product but terrible battery life
on 8 January 2014
I would 100% recommend this product to any parent. It is fun, user friendly, educational and convenient. Perfect for long journeys or even around the house. It's gratifying to know as a parent that your child is both being entertained as well as being educated. I worried that the educational element may make the leappad boring, especially as my son already has an iPad and both wii consoles-I was doubtful that he would be fooled! But he absolutely loves it!
One major issue though is the battery life. The leappad requires 4 AA batteries which last roughly 4 hours! Very frustrating! When purchasing this it is imperative to also purchase rechargeable batteries and a battery recharger. It's a shame that the LeapPad doesn't come with an integrated battery as that is the only thing I feel really lets the product down.
Also worth noting, this product does not come with the monster university game which much be purchased separately.
